Undergraduate preparation required by veterinary schools typically includes a year of physics, at least one semester of calculus and two years of chemistry. Students may major in any subject as long as the requirements are met. In addition, extensive experience with animals prior to applying to veterinary school is highly desired. Most students interested in becoming a veterinarian major in biology: pre-med and other health professions and work closely with a faculty advisor specializing in the preparation of students with these interests. Blackburn College students who have performed well in the biology program and on the GRE routinely enter veterinary school. Over the past decade, 100% of our veterinary school applicants have been accepted into at least one US Veterinary Program.
